Future Citizen Project
The Future Citizen project focuses on rights and duties of the citizen, tolerance and freedom, civic responsibilities and engagement. Between September and May, students will research laws, elections, and governmental systems in their own country as well as complete a service learning project such as a voter registration drive, volunteering for a candidate, volunteering at the polls, or writing letters to government officials about important community issues. Students will monitor the international press for reports on human rights and election results. Students will create a documentary of their work in a photo journal, video tape, or multimedia presentation. This work will be shared in the forum and on a project website.
